Nobody was brought up to replace Stevenson.

There was some savings on Stevenson and Kapanen. We're also saving money on Umberger/Primeau.

It might not be a ton of money, but it could be significant come February/March.
Club payrolls will never be permitted to be below the minimum or in excess of the maximum. Clubs at or near the upper limit that have players who incur a bona fide long-term injury will be entitled to replace up to the full value of the injured player's NHL salary (even if such salary would result in the club's team salary exceeding the upper limit). The "replacement salary" will not count against the club's upper limit but will count against the League-wide players' share.

This quote is open to interpretation but mine is that the "cap relief" only comes in if a team has to go over the cap to replace an injured player.
